Dr Sarosh Mulla

Member of the Future Cities Research Hub | Lecturer


Sarosh’s research is practice based. It focuses on the realisation of projects with unusual materials, procurement pathways or operational modes for the architect. The research often deals with experiments in light and shadow within built projects through the manipulation of architectural form, as well as the development of optical effects in the design of architectural space, particularly within the New Zealand context. As an active practitioner and researcher Sarosh is looking for application of new design technology and practices into the realisation of full scale projects.

Research interests:


  • Design research in architecture
  • Architects in the expanded field
  • Optical effects in architecture
  • Contemporary architectural practice
